Your article basically shows that the least educated, those with an average amount of education and the most educated all tend to vote in larger numbers for Democrats.

    Re: What are you most afraid of:

    I guess you are not able to comprehend my point-I never said that most dems are HS dropouts I said most HS dropouts vote dem by noting that those with the least amount of education were most likely to be dems.

    You really don't have the education to make such comments about me dude.

    not at all, the issue was which party was most likely to be supported by the most ignorant or least educated people

    the post graduate numbers favor the dems because the most common PG degrees in the USA are masters for teaching and law degrees and I will readily concede that the teachers unions and a majority of lawyers see the dem party as more advantageous to their interests

    You and this site are making a statement that reveals complete stupidity.

    It's the equivalent of saying - 3% of the population are avid fans of Polka music. Of the polka music fans, 64% voted democratic.

    Therefore the Dems attract mostly polka music fans.

    Your whole premise that Dem policy is designed to get votes from the poor uneducated people is false because the vote is split along income lines and high school drop outs don't represent enough of the vote to matter. 30% of the 3% is still voting GOP, what does that tell you?

    Now from one district to the next you may find a poor/drop-out trend, but there of plenty bible belt districts with many social-cons that never finished high school and rely on welfare. They vote republican.

    you are caught lying and you change the issue

    the fact is MORE HS DROPOUTS vote dem than GOP and the educational cohort that MOST FAVORS DEMS ARE HS DROPOUTS

    ignorant people are more likely to vote dem than any other group

    and if you want to compare education on a purely personal level lets have at it

    Well, that's not what you said... and you left out that Dems get those on the top end as well. How do you explain that? The smartest and the underprivileged vote dem?

    You absolutely did make the claim about Dems attracting only lower incomes... which your own stats prove false.

    You really don't have the education to make such comments about me dude.
    Given your gross misinterpretation of the stats, I question your education.

    do you really want to compare education?

    I don't think so given the post someone sent to me about your claims

    but the issue wasn't top end where there are lots of government supported PhD's and teachers its about the most ignorant and uneducated people-the group that gives a HIGHER PERCENTAGE SUPPORT TO THE DEMS THAN ANY OTHER EDUCATIONAL COHORT IS THE HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS

    I didn't misinterpret anything-you made up a claim I never stated and then whined about it

    First of all, you've shown that in 2006, 64% of the people who didn't finish HS (3%) voted Dem. So, Dems carried a 14 pt lead in that 3% of the population.

    Some strategy, eh. We lock up that 0.018% and we'll own the GOP...

    ignorant people are more likely to vote dem than any other group
    I'm sorry, I don't see the stat for IQ.

    You did mention something about graduate degrees...

    and if you want to compare education on a purely personal level lets have at it

    You? -- I could care less, your posts reveal, IMO, a lack of critical thinking ability.

    wow a BA in English-from where?

    If its Amherst or Princeton that might be interesting

    me BA, JD, MS (labor relations and labor law)

    all from top schools-the BA and the MS were from (at the time # 1 program in the nation)

    one with honors, one with high honors

    and you can claim what you want but your lack of ability to understand the obvious suggests you engage in emotobabbling rather than critical thinking

    A non-islamic extremist example are the death-cults that believe the world will end - soon - and they intend to hasten their departure. (it's not *very common* but it has happened in the last few years as we approach 2012)
    They freak me out, too. . . I wouldn't want them anywhere near me if their beliefs, in a sister-cult, led to the deaths of thousands.

    You know - anytime someone doesn't have a problem with killing others and does it as some part of a religious-freedom or self empowering things I *really* just don't want them around my hood.
